Slow and steady wins the race, right?
Not for one turtle hanging out in the middle of a road in Williamson County earlier this week.
On Monday, Sheriff Robert Chody tweeted a video of him helping a turtle cross the road -- but the turtle wants no part of it. Once Chody gets close to him, the little shelled fellow takes off at full speed.
How does it feel getting outrun by a turtle? Not great, according to Chody. The next day, he tweeted that the encounter encouraged him to go for a run, writing that he knows “what the rabbit felt like.”
I have a sudden desire to go for a run. Maybe because a turtle is faster then me. I’m not kidding, a turtle out ran me yesterday. #ThatsMyLife #ImSoSlow #IKnowWhatTheRabbitFeltLike pic.twitter.com/KTpqd8ATDf— Williamson County Sheriff (WilCo) Texas (@SheriffChody) July 11, 2018

When the video gained popularity and was shared by ABC News on Wednesday, Chody tweeted, “That’s it! Going running again today!”
You’ll get him next time, Sheriff.
